|One of many little pieces of paper I collect - this one with|
cool curling team names I noticed at the club.
Which is what I was doing today when I found this: a list of team names I copied down at my curling club in February. It was a Wednesday night, and I had just come off the ice with my Ladies' team. The club manager took the microphone to rally the teams for the next draw - a mostly-beginners business league.
A league with great names!
As she read them out, I listened with growing interest. Anyone who loves words and works with language as much as I do can't resist the sound of people playing around with puns and adjectives and allusions etc. Once the teams hit the ice, I scurried over to the glass where the draw was posted, and I scribbled down some of the names. For posterity. For fun. For this blog.
So here goes: fun with curling team names. Some more creative than others...
Legion of Broom
Rock Stars (okay, not so original)
New World Curlers
Stocks & Stones
Don't Hit The Hack
Nick's Bitter End
On the Rocks...
And my personal favourite...
The Sheet Disturbers.
Enough with the Team (insert skip's name here) already! Give me a creative curling team name, any day. Any day soon would be nice. (Only another couple of months until the ice goes back in...)
